Family: Monarchidae (Monarchs)
Authority: (Newton, 1867)
Red List Category
Following the successful translocation to Denis Island, the range and population size have increased steadily and consistently during the last five years, and this species therefore no longer qualifies as Critically Endangered. Both populations on Denis and La Digue islands are now self-sustaining and breeding successfully. The population on La Digue remains threatened by development pressures, which although slowing, are still causing territory loss in some areas of the island. This species has therefore been downlisted to Vulnerable.
